Problem

The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (SOS) makes own definition tables parallel to the process at the Nordic Casemix Centre (NCC) and the current problem was discovered during routine comparison between SWE2014CC-SOS-PR02 (SOS version) and SWE2014PR0F (NCC version) in the autumn 2013.

Late in the updating process for NordDRG 2014 we noticed that some codes for transplantation (see table below) had lost the procedure property 08S20 (Other musculosceletal system or connective tissue OR procedure) in the NCC version. (ZZK10 is a new code for 2014 and we had given it 08S20 like ZZK00.) Martti motivated the withdrawal with: ”The logic of driving over the orthopedic intervetion with a transplant material code is unclear”.

The procedure property 08S20 leads to DRG H49/233-234 (Andra operationer på muskler, ben & bindväv) which are surgical rest groups in MDC 08. In the Swedish cost database 2011 there were 8 cases with a code from the table above among the 1082 patients in DRG H49.

It is possible that 08S20 is unnecessary for these transplantation codes but we see no harm with keeping it and therefore the matter should be analyzed and discussed by the expert network before any change. Until then 08S20 should be reinserted for the codes in the table above.

Suggestion

The property has been harmonized between the national versions. The property only exist currently in Swedish version.
The significance is propably very low, but it should be identical in all versions.
Either the property has to be introduced to all versions or removed also from Sweden.
